Leading with Why
  • I live in the now. I flow easily from project to project with ease. My adaptive personality allows me to merge into multiple cultures and create relationships with a diverse network.

  • I strive to know more than I did the day before. My thirst for knowledge is never full. It is important to grow my knowledge base so that I have plenty of resources at hand to battle the unknown and deal with unique situations.

  • New ideas are my passion and my fuel. Continuous innovation is a core principal. I seek out ideas by developing engagement and leading with why.

What you get...

I am a focused leader with expertise in creating engagement to build a strong internal and external brand identity that inspires people to believe in the vision and goals of your company.

I am passionate about communications and their power to inspire new and meaningful innovations I believe I can change the world.
"David was often asked to take on large projects that he had little to no experience in. However, he used them as an opportunity to make new connections in the organization, ask pertinent questions from the experts and surround himself with individuals that helped him grow."
-Robert Hanlon, Director of Marketing, NWACC
